Subject Re: 2 ways to merge uimaj v2 and v3
Date Tue, 20 Aug 2019 19:06:54 GMT
A big error: although svn copy from one svn repo to another doesn't preserve
it turns out our projects in the Apache SVN are all in on giant repository,
so that doing the svn copy does preserve history.

I can in fact go back in the history of some uima v3 files, and see the v2 history,
from before I made the v3 copy.

So, I think doing the svn copy of v2 into v3 as a new branch is the way to go.

Anyone agree/disagree? -Marshall
